Dancing With The Stars and country music singing sensation, and all-around cutie pie Julianne Hough lets us know from the land of Twitter that her Cavalier King Charles baby, Lexi is in the running for Country Music is Love’s “Country’s Cutest Dog” contest!
Here are some adorable photos of Lexi and Mama (no, we can’t get enough of these two…or three; gotta throw Mama’s boyfriend Chuck Wicks in there too!), along with the other country stars’ pups who are in contention!Â Included are Kellie Pickler, Jake Owen, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert.
Here’s a washing machine – for cats and dogs. The Dog-O-Matic, a carwash-style device to keep pets smelling fresh, was invented by Frenchman, Romain Jarry.
Now the 31-year-old, who insists the machine is not cruel, hopes to export it around the world after dog and cat owners flocked to use it in his home town of St Max. He said: “It doesn’t take long to wash the dog – usually a few minutes. “The longest part is the drying. The dogs don’t seem to get bored.”Owners place their pets inside the machines, much as they would with dirty laundry.
The animals are soaked with water thanks to a special hydro-massage system that pumps out jets of water at 32 degrees Celsius.
Special mild dog shampoo – similar to baby shampoo – is used to avoid stinging eyes. The drying cycle lasts about 25 minutes. It costs about $20 USD to wash a small dog, $35 USD for a medium size dog, and up to $50 USD for the largest, or dirtiest dogs. Cats can also be washed – at the small-dog price.

“The dogs don’t seem to get bored”???? Really? No kidding…they’re probably terrified andÂ scared out of their minds if it sounds anything like the automated car washes I’ve been to!!!Â You could probably charge admission if you put your cat in there! Yikes, I don’t know….I’m pretty sure none of my animals would be happy about this!
What about yours? Would you try this out on your own pets?
